Review:

"Cheever's accomplishment in his exacting art is proportionally large, as solid as it is brilliant, and likely to endure" ( New York Review of Books)

"Currently I'm reading John Cheever's Collected Stories . My God, he was good" (David Mitchell)

"'The Swimmer' is a masterpiece of mystery, language and sorrow" (Michael Chabon)

"I reread Cheever's 'The Swimmer' late the other night. It had the effect that reading Cheever always has: it made me want to get up and start the futile task of trying to write something as measured yet mysteriously, heart-judderingly unexpected for myself" (Gordon Burns Sunday Times)

"Magnificently touching, moving and funny, and often set in an imaginary but archetypically well-heeled American suburb" (Jan Morris)

Book Description:

The complete collection of award-winning stories from one of the finest American writers of the last century
